Making a film is a hell of a job, which involves hundreds of thousands of euros at the very least and mobilizes a team of 200 people. However, it is not because we make a film that we like it. Some actors have publicly declared that they hated certain films in the credits of which they appear; more surprisingly, some directors, including when they originated the project, expressed the same sentiment. Poor little rich kids.
1. Paul Haggis hates Collision
Table of Contents
Arguably the most controversial Best Picture Oscar of the past 15 years, Crash did not leave an imperishable memory, including in the eyes of its director, Paul Haggis. According to him: “It was not the best film of the year. There were plenty of great movies: Good Night, and Good Luck, Hood, Munich, Brokeback Mountain. In truth, there was better. »
Maybe not hatred, but at least lucidity.
2. Fantastic Four by Josh Trank
We can neither speak of public success, nor speak of critical success. Either way, it’s unclear who is going to champion the film, as even the director, Josh Trank, has distanced himself from the film. “A year ago, I had a wonderful version of the film. She would have received great reviews. You will never see her. It is the truth, however. »
The tweet has since been deleted.
3. Spider-Man 3 according to Sam Raimi
“Here’s a movie that didn’t deliver what it was supposed to,” the director said in 2014. “I did what I could, but I didn’t really believe in the characters, and Spider-Man fans don’t could only see it. When a director doesn’t like something, he shouldn’t do it. »
And it is true that it is not OUF the film.
4. Mathieu Kassovitz, not tender with Babylon AD
The film is a big fat shit, and Kassovitz agrees. For him, it’s “a purely violent and stupid thing”, “a bad episode of 24 hour clock. But Kassovitz, accustomed to public shouting matches, judges the studios responsible: “I didn’t have a single opportunity to shoot a scene as I wanted. The script was not respected. The producers sucked, the partners no better: it was hell. »
5. American History X, according to Tony Kaye
Tony Kaye, the director of the film, had a fight with the production company, New Line Cinema and Edward Norton. “Today, I realize that I was an immature idiot and an egomaniac,” he declared in 2002. “However, when the film was released, Kaye was not enthusiastically enthusiastic.
6. Alien 3 or the spot in Fincher’s filmo
Alien 3 is David Fincher’s first film. And at the time, we didn’t quite trust him like we do now. Fincher didn’t like the script, but the studios couldn’t care less and made the director do what they told him to do. As a result, Fincher hates the film and readily admits it sucks. What the critics and the public agreed on.
7. Annie Hall or the paradox of Woody Allen
Probably Allen’s biggest movie success, Annie Hall is a bit of a director’s standard, specializing in comments like “Woody Allen’s best film since Annie Hall“. “Oscar for best film in 1977, the film does not seduce its author that much, who judges it a failure, unclear and incoherent.
8. The Rope or Hitchcock’s Bad Idea
The 1948 film takes place according to a system of false sequence shots only cut 3 or 4 times via static shots. For Hitchcock, The rope is “an experiment that didn’t work”. Hitchcock even bought all the rights to the film in an effort to make it disappear forever.
9. On edge by Steven Soderbergh
Soderbergh, who had not yet begun his incessant back-and-forth mechanism “I’m stopping movies”, “I’m doing movies again” when he realized On edge, in 1995, does not consider the film to be up to its standards. Rather well noted, the film is considered by its author as “a big mess”, “death barely finished” and above all made without any passion.
10. Dune by David Lynch
By accepting the project, David Lynch wanted above all to negotiate to have peace in order to be able to carry out blue-velvet then. Result: on the set of the adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel, Lynch was constantly confronted with intrusions from the studios and ended up asking that his name be removed from the project when it was released in theaters.
